Over the past month, Lori Loughlin, known for her role on the tv show Full House, faces multiple charges after news came out that she bribed a college to let her daughter go to school there. Her and her husband are among 16 other parents also facing federal charges. This is said to be the largest college admissions scandal in U.S. history. The parents were charged with money laundering in a superseding indictment earlier this week. Last month, they were taken into custody because of their earlier charges of conspiring to commit fraud. Among the parents was actor, Felicity Huffman. Felicity and 12 other parents agreed to plead guilty because documents show that the conspiracy scheme dates all the way back to 2011. Lori has not decided to plead guilty to any of the charges yet. Felicity said, ¨My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I have betrayed her. This transgression toward her and the public I will carry for the rest of my life. My desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty.¨ Huffman said this after her plea deal was announced.
